Dani Olmo has reportedly signed a new contract with RB Leipzig amid recent rumours that Liverpool are interested in signing the Spanish international.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the 25-year-old playmaker has penned fresh terms with the Bundesliga club that will secure Olmo’s future in Germany. However, the former Dinamo Zagreb star’s new contract notably includes a release clause that might be of interest to Liverpool.
90min claimed that Liverpool had sent scouts to watch Olmo in Leipzig’s penultimate game of the season against Bayern Munich. However, this latest move from the club will seemingly keep the attacking midfielder in east Germany for at least one more season.
However, as mentioned, Olmo’s new deal does crucially include a release clause. And for a club like Liverpool, this could be massive in the January or summer windows of 2024 should Jurgen Klopp want to bring the Leipzig star to Anfield, with a set fee now in place to make a deal happen.
Olmo’s new contract has put the ball firmly into Liverpool’s court
Leipzig have done well to secure a prized asset for at least a few months. Yet with Olmo now subject to a release clause, Liverpool now have the power to one day activate the fee that could allow the Spanish international to join the Reds in the next 12 months.
As we know, Liverpool are big fans of the 25-year-old, and with Olmo signing a contract with a set exit fee, a move could one day happen that sees the Spaniard leave Germany for Merseyside, a deal which could please a lot of supporters.
